that the president would not be alerted to this fact? >> well, i can't speak for what is going on in the obama white house. bob mueller was my fbi director when i was the attorney general. i suspect at some point this summer bob mueller would have notified the attorney general. i have reason to believe general general petraeus is involved in an a extramarital relationship. now i would have taken that information, which i consider significant to the president quite frankly. i think the president would want to know that information. i think the president wants to know that the person who holds many of nation's secrets is engaged in conduct that reflects poor judgment. also, at the time, we now believe reporting is there was no breach of national security as a result of this relationship. i suspect in the summer we weren't really quite sure of that consequently it might be important for the president to know that in his conversations with david petraeus. for matters of national security i think this would be a reason why the president would want to know that the law enforcement community, that the fbi,

. president obama appeared before reporters at the white house on wednesday for his first news conference since winning his second term. he made some of his most extensive comments on climate change to date, acknowledging that his administration had fallen short in taking on global warming. >> we have not done as much as we need to. what i am going to be doing over the next several weeks it, next several months, is having a conversation with scientists, engineers, and elected officials to find out what more can we do to make short-term progress in reducing carbons, and then working through an education process that i think it is necessary, a conversation across the country, about what realistically can do long term. >> despite hard to take action on climate change, obama said he will not advance any environmental policy that override economic concerns. >> there is no doubt that for us to take on climate change and a serious way would involve making some tough political choices. understandably, i think the american people right now have been so focused and will continue to focus on our eco

[video clip] >> why is it that anybody including our ambassadors to the united nations would believe spontaneous demonstrations are composed of people with mortars, rocket-propelled grenades, and heavy weapons? nobody believes that. why did president obama insists that he labeled the defense an act of terrorism on september 12 when we know now -- i repeat, we know now in an interview on the same day he refused to characterize the attacks in this way and spent two weeks putting the emphasis on a spontaneous protest to a hateful video including in his address to the united nations on september 25? we need a select committee. americans deserve to know. the families of those slain americans need to know. why in the world the administration or our friends and the oth

, gifts to minorities were not the reason that president obama won the white state of new hampshire, the largely white state of iowa. it's not why he won the hometown of paul ryan, janesville, wisconsin. so there's just a factual issue. but third and biggest, and this is where you heard the louisiana governor, bobby jindal, installed yesterday as the chairman of the republican governors association. this is where you heard him coming in, that republicans say this is a just-doesn't-get-it moment for romney. it makes republicans think that the 47% comment was no slip of the tongue. at his press conference in las vegas yesterday, governor jindal, our reporter, says became visibly agitated about this and said these comments were absolutely wrong. and they come at a time when almost every other leading republican figure is saying the party really needs to look inside itself and change karl rove. in "the wall street journal" today, it's saying the republican party needs to reverse engineer what the obama campaign did in its turnout efforts. senator john cornyn of texas, the head of the se
, or the white house has got to help him with a way out. >> chuck, it's s.e. you heard obama, president obama, yesterday at his press conference talk about the mandate to raise taxes. he basically said that this is what people voted for, and more pem wa people wanted this than voted for me. do you expect that to be the new party mantra, this sort of you asked for it, as opposed to, we're doing this because we think it's good economic policy? because honestly, i've got to say, you asked for it, well, the people also want a balanced budget. they want tax reform. they want a lot of things that aren't probably going to happen any time soon. >> reporter: right. i think he thinks on this specific topic, it was something that was in the exit polls, so it's something tangible that he can latch on to. and the fact is, on the tax issue, raising taxes on those that make over $250,000 has had a majority support for a couple of years. >> yeah. >> reporter: ever since this conversation has started. i think it's really on the specific topic. you know, s.e., if you really wanted to get in that exit poll, it
as it goes into effect over the next year. with obama safely in the white house for another term, house republicans say they will no longer try to repeal the affordable care act. but they are putting some intense scrutiny on how those changes are taking place. the house ways and means committee is now issuing a subpoena for health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius. they're demanding to know how the agency is using taxpayer money to pay for p.r. and advertising campaigns. health and human services has signed at least two contracts. one of those worth $20 million. the house ways committee says americans deserve to know where their money is going. meanwhile, employer health insurance premiums just saw their lowest increase in the last 15 years. at the beginning of the decade, premiums were going up by 10% to 15% but this year, the increase was just 4%. now the bad news, this does not necessarily mean lower cost for you. employers know when the healthcare reform goes into full effect in 2014, they will have t

when sandy made landfall in this very rare storm in new england. yesterday at the white house president obama was asked about federal response. and he was also asked about his goals for how to deal with climate change and energy. and he seemed to really downplay any expectations of sweeping energy and climate change legislation. saying instead that he was focusing first on the economy and creating jobs. >> i am a firm believer that climate change is real, that it has impacted -- as a consequence i think we have an obligation to future generations to do something about it. and understandably i think the american people right now have been so focused and will continue to be focused on our economy and jobs and growth that if the message is somehow we're going to ignore jobs and growth simply to address climate change, i don't think anybody's going to go for that. i won't go for that. >> reporter: now, wolf, president obama said that more needs to be done. but he says he wants to have a national conversation talking to scientists, elected officials, engineers. so keeping it very broad. not
public response. here's what president obama had to say. this is his press conference in the white house. >> let me say specifically about susan rice, she has done exemplary work. she has represented the united states and our interest in the united nations with skill and professionalism and toughness and grace. as i have said before, she made an appearance at the request of the white house in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her. senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and besmirch her reputation is outrageous. host: president obama at a press conference. yesterday the ambassador he was talking about is susan rice, ambassador to the u.n. here's an image of her in the "washington times." and a quote from her. the best information and best assessment we have today is that in f

is at the white house this morning. chuck, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, matt. president obama thought he was going to be using his first post election press conference to make his case on the fiscal cliff and also to show a new reaching out to republicans. instead, he found himself on the receiving end of criticism from not one, but two former presidential rivals. >> good afternoon, everybody. >> reporter: at his first post election press conference, president obama reiterated his pledge to sit down with mitt romney, even offering him praise. >> there are certain aspects of governor romney's record and his ideas that i think could be very helpful. >> reporter: but while the president was paying him compliments, mitt romney was telling donors on a conference call a different story. romney said he was sorry we didn't win and he blamed his defeat on gifts the president had given to his most loyal voters, including african-americans, young voters, and hispanics. mr. romney said the president followed the old play book and with regards to the young people, for instance, a forgivene
, but that upset president obama very much in his news conference yesterday. let's listen. >> as i've said before, she made an appearance at the request of the white house, in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. >> so, mr. chairman, you know, the president, obviously, very critical there. you have called for susan rice's resignation. however, she had the same information that david petraeus had, apparently given by the dni, apparently given to people who were doing interviews. how does that square? >> actually, i think we'll find out, that was not the information that the cia had. it's not the information that david petraeus had. and that's why his testimony on september 14th was so unusual. the fact is, without going into all the details, documents we've seen show that within 24 hours of the attack, people in the intelligence community believe that this was a terrorist attack, that it was a planned attack. and so when they knew that, the day aft
